Some friends of ours gave us an ice cream machine for our wedding. And we didn’t take it out of the box for at least a year (what is WRONG with us). The first few times I tried to make ice cream, it didn’t go so well. Wether is was something I was doing wrong or whatever, my ice cream just did not turn out well. And to make things harder was that I needed to make it sugar free.
Then, I found this. Alton Brown’s Chocolate Ice Cream. And it’s perfect in every way. For real. The only tweek I had to make was to use Spenda (or Trivia) instead of sugar. Perfect for R! And I love that you can add whatever toppings you want. This last batch I made had pecans in it. Yum.
This is a perfect summer treat; even if your loved one is diabetic or on Adkins!
Some tips on making ice cream:
- Make sure your ice cream bowl that you have to put in the freeze is SUPER frozen. 24 hours in the freezer should be all good.
- Add a little salt to the end product when you are done. For real. It makes the chocolate extra rich. And rich is good!
Have you ever made ice cream before? Any tips I can use?
